Cinnamon Raisin Pinwheels
My partner absolutely LOVED these! I omitted the raisins, and used some whole wheat flour as i didnt have quite enough all-purpose. Added a bit of extra brown sugar, a bit more butter, and a bit less milk. Have an apartment sized oven (smaller) so set it for 410F, and baked for 14minutes. Only way to be improve may be to sweeten the dough with a bit of sugar or vanilla?

Thumbprint Cookies III
My fiance Angus came across this recipe recently, and because he CANT EAT EGG OR DAIRY, he made this vegan, with egg replacer, and margarine. Beat the appropriate amount of water with the egg replacer to make four eggs and added that when the yolks were called for. Rolled them into balls probably twice as big as suggested, to make large cookies, and then, rather than dip them in egg whites, rolled them in brown sugar instead. He made bigger thumbprints, and he used APPLE JELLY to fill them, and sprinkled them with SKOR TOFFEE BITS, BEFORE putting them in the oven. Took 15 minutes because they're larger. These turned out to be reallllyy incredible cookies! Now me, home on a sick day from work, am keeping myself cheery by making these Angus-tweaked Thumb-print Cookies.

Banana Bread VIII
I used margarine instead of butter, and added about a half cup of peanut butter, and sprinkled the top with cinnamon sugar! Dee-lish!
